Barcelona

Barcelona

Barcelona is similar to the classical theater, with the starry sky as the backdrop and the sea as a scene. The role of the proletarian orchestra performs like the old town with its cheap boarding houses, and rowdy bars; Eixample bourgeois forms as an amphitheater, built up by banks, boutiques, gay clubs and restaurants, and the upper zone – an aristocratic second floor.

Old Town

Moving inside the city is very simple and understandable and can be done at a glance of the map. Around the mixture of inter twining streets, three is an historic core, the Old Town (Ciutat Vella), which consists of four areas: Born, the Gothic Quarter, Raval and Barceloneta. Crossed with narrow winding streets, they are literally crammed with attractions, shops and bars. Meandering down the little side streets away from the Gothic Quarter and Raval will lead you to the Barrio Chino, the former red light district.

Gothic Quarter

With two equal parts, the Old Town is bordered by two parallel streets that lead down to the sea, Rambla promenade and the business street of Via Laietana, which is positioned around the Barri Gòtic. With its maze of street, each 2-3 meters wide, there are numerous sights located around every corner, all of which the crowds savor. Apartments in Gothic District.

Born

Born District, part of the Old Town, located on the right side of the Via Laietana. This is a very popular place among tourists because of the Picasso Museum, Santa Caterina Market, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Mar, and a huge number of bars, shops and boutiques. Apartments in Born.

Eixample

It is believed that this is the best area in Barcelona. Bourgeois Eixample features a simple layout with neat square blocks, which is difficult to get lost in. Different periods of construction are found here and coincided with the heyday of modernism, and most of the monuments of that time, including works of Gaudí, are all found here (all of the most interesting buildings are located just outside the old town). Back to reality, the Eixample Barcelona has a lot of offices, retail space, galleries and restaurants. The main street of this district – the famous avenue of Gracia, has the most exclusive boutiques in Barcelona, ​​including Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Burberry.

Gracia

Typically, the tourist only enters into the area of Gracia that is considered to be bohemian. A great feature of this district is in the evening when all the inhabitants of the quarter such as, artists and actors gather in the squares and coffee shops, so you will not be bored here. In Gracia there are many art galleries, designer studios and interesting cafe.

Poble Nou

This vantage point over the sea is often compared to that of Lower Manhattan and the London docklands. Here is where you find one of the most important European centers of new technologies. Meanwhile, in the area there still hovers the spirit of old Barcelona even though the center is built up with low-rise buildings and shops, markets, bars all meet former industrial buildings that have been converted into trendy lofts and studios.
